More so than any of the three high school sports seasons, the fall seems to be the time of year for dominant programs, teams with a long-standing history of success.
So in an attempt to create the first poll for the blog, I was thinking, which team in the readers’ eyes is the most dominant?
The Darien High School volleyball team, which is the eight-time defending FCIAC and state champion, and has won 17 conference and 14 state titles since 1990?
The Wilton High School girls soccer team, which has won two state titles in the last three years, four this decade, and has won 10 state and nine league titles in its history?
The New Canaan football team, the three-time defending state champion and reigning league champion, which has won five state titles this decade and 18 state and seven FCIAC titles in its history?
The Greenwich High School girls swimming team, which has won 11 consecutive league titles and every one but two since 1980?
Or the Greenwich High School football team, which has won five league titles this decade, 13 in all, two state titles in the past three years, made six appearances in the state final this decade and has won seven state championships overall?
So, who do you think is the most dominant? Now’s your chance to have your say. I have set up a poll that is open until noon on Sunday. You are allowed to vote once. And you are allowed to comment; I will post them all as long as they are done in an appropriate manner. What was the reason for your vote? What teams should have also been considered — I did not include any boys soccer or field hockey teams because of recent parity?
Make your voice heard, and may the best team win.
